Strawberry Recipe Contest – Our Picks!

Banner for Strawberry Recipe Contest – Our Picks!

We had a great response to our May Flavor of the Month – Strawberries! Thank you all for your recipe submissions. It was tough narrowing down the three recipes that we were most interested in making. Rest assured, we’ll be trying the entire list before strawberry season comes to a close!

The recipes we tested and added to our database are…


The Strawberry Mojito, submitted by Virginia Stockwell!

So refreshing; we loved the addition of strawberries to this classic summer cocktail. Even without the rum (there were two pregnant recipe testers after all) this was the perfect afternoon drink to sip on the back deck.


The Strawberry Rhubarb Snack Cake, submitted by Lindsey of Pas de Deux!

So simple and delicious, we loved this cake both for an afternoon snack and for breakfast with coffee! This should be a spring picnic staple; so easy to transport and hold on a napkin while socializing with friends.


And our winner, the Danish Strawberry Cake submitted by Signe Clayton!

Oh my goodness. While at first glance it seems that this cake would be complicated, it really is not. With a base similar in consistency to pound cake, a middle layer of crunchy, lemon-scented meringue, and an outer layer of sour whipped cream, this cake has it all. We’re smitten.  This one takes a bit more care to transport and will melt in high heat, so save it for your summer dinner parties at home. But please, make it as soon as you have a good excuse. Or even just because.

Thank you, Signe!  You’ve won a jar of our custom Beyond the Flavor jam, created for us by Jam According to Daniel!  Please email us so that we can get it to you ASAP.
